Cape Verde -> Boa Vista




The Owner of 'Boa Vista Holiday Apartments' says about sal rei
Sal Rei (literally \\\\\\\'Salt King\\\\\\\'), with a population of about 3,000 inhabitants, is Boavista\\\\\\\'s capital. The town was originally known as Porto Ingles, probably due to the English sailors that established a salt business on the Island in the 1600s. The Duque de Braganca fort, which faces Sal Rei from the nearby islet (Ilhu de Sal Rei), was built to protect the port from the frequent pirate attacks that plagued the Island during the early 1800s. Apparently, it is possible to swim the 1.5km to this Islet from Sal Rei, though you can also take a boat.
The Owner of 'Resort Cabral' says about sal rei
Boavista is the third largest of ten islands that form Cape Verde. Boavista island boasts 55km of white sand beaches including the 18km of Santa Monica Beach, one of the most beautiful to be found anywhere in the world. Boa Vista is a harsh, dry island, with a mostly flat desert like interior, rainfall is unreliable leading to frequent droughts and there is a lack of infrastructure. These harsh conditions have led to most of the native people from the Island of Boa Vista emigrating and now officially only 4,000 people reside on the island, about 1% of the Cape Verde population. It comes as no surprise that Boa Vista is the birthplace of the \\\'morna\\\' a unique form of mournful Cape Verde music that speaks of the love of lost ones.

Of all the 10 islands of the archipelago of Cape Verde, Boa Vista is located farthest east, lying just 455 km from the African coast. Its surface is about 620 km making it the third largest island in the country. It is basically composed of volcanic rocks and sand, and consequently has the longest and most beautiful beaches in the country.

The Owner of 'Vila Cabral 2' says about sal rei
A busy town with all amenities such as banks etc, whilst still retaining much of its original African/Portuguese charm. Boa Vista is home to some of the most dazzling beaches on the archipelago covering a staggering 55km. Closest to the African mainland, Boa Vista is not only renowned for its stunning beaches but its marine life too. Nightlife here is very low key and quiet with just a scattering of local restaurants and bars. More About Boa Vista Boa Vista is quite literally covered in sand and many buildings have been completely absorbed leaving an endless blanket of sand. A great example of this is on Praia da Chaves, an old ceramic factory covered in sand is still intact with machines in situ! Sahara like dunes in the interior of the island with sprouting date palms are an impressive sight and well worth a visit. Depending on the time of year you may even spot some turtles on the islands southern beaches. Boa Vista is thought to be the third most important loggerhead nesting
